Liquitex Acrylic Glass Beads Medium
Art Glittering System Ultra Fine Angel Dust glitter
Teeny Silver Glass Beads
Sulky metallic threads in silver and gray
Pearl acrylic paint
Silver PearlEx powder
1. On a pallette (I use a
margerine lid) mix your pearl acrylic with the Glass Beads medium.
Make it as chunky as you want. I made mine pretty chunky because I
wanted a lot of texture.
2. Spread the mixture over your sketch paper. Really glop it on.
3. Into the paint/beads mixture, sprinkle the glitter, silver glass beads, and silver pearlex. To apply the PearlEx, I dip my soft fluffy brush into the bottle and then tap the brush handle as I hold it over the paper.
4. Take your metallic threads and let them drizzle off the spool into the medium. Gently press the threads down into the medium so that they adhere. I touched them down here and there, but also let the threads float above the surface in places.
5. Let dry.
Note: Because of the threads, this paper is not really tearable. You're going to need scissors to cut it into pieces for your projects.
